In what was a dream line-up to celebrate British Airways' launch of its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on its daily London-Abu Dhabi-Muscat service, Australian actress Margot Robbie and fellow Hollywood star Orlando Bloom flew in for an exclusive VIP party on Zaya Nurai Island just off the coast Abu Dhabi.
Over 200 guests, celebrities and VIPs who attended the event were also treated to a live performance by Jessie J to celebrate the latest addition to British Airways' fleet - which made its inaugural flight into Abu Dhabi on Thursday.
In a statement, Jessie said: "Flying is a huge part of my life now... I love Abu Dhabi and am excited to have been able to perform for the people who have helped me travel around the world with my music safely and comfortably."
Meanwhile, Robbie said that she'd fallen in love with Abu Dhabi. She added: "I've only been in Abu Dhabi for a day or so but it is a place of beautiful contrasts. I visited the desert yesterday and the vast tranquillity of that landscape is the opposite of the cosmopolitan modernity of the city – it is a beautiful place."

Bloom, also a fan of the Emirati city, said, "Ever since I was a kid, I've loved to travel. There’s nothing quite like the luxury of the new First cabin on British Airways."
